Why get help with chemistry in London?

Whether it's to help you achieve high marks in high-school or university, or to help you prepare for a degree in the science, getting a chemistry tutor can have many benefits. While Werner put forth his theory on coordination compounds in 1823, almost 200 years ago, you might have found yourself puzzled by the complex compounds part. If so, why not take some home tutoring classes!

The sciences are particularly complex, and it is difficult to tackle a whole program without sometimes forgetting bits here and there. Chemistry can be divided into several categories, namely: organic chemistry (the study of carbon containing compounds), inorganic chemistry (the study of non organic substances), physical chemistry (the study of the changes and properties of matter), analytical chemistry (the identification of the composition of materials), biochemistry (the study of substances and process occurring in living things), and finally theoretical chemistry (the study of principles and chemical behavior using math and computers).

It would be very ambitious to tackle all this alone and, unless you are a great British chemist such as Michael Faraday, Edward Frankland or Rosalind Franklin, it is unlikely that you would understand everything at first. Whether you are really struggling or just need a refresher, there's no reason to be shy.

You can even take tutoring lessons with someone your own age, if that helps you to feel more comfortable: studying exam review booklets, creating study sheets, getting help with your current homework problems... the possibilities are endless. To get inspired, visit a center such as the Royal Society of Chemistry located at the Burlington House in Piccadilly London.

Every student responds differently to a physics class or a chemistry class, so it's important not to build up too much pressure while trying to keep up the pace, whatever your goals are! Among the topics most often visited during a chemistry tutoring session, we find: acids, bases and pH, electrochemistry, units and measurement, the periodic table of elements, equations, thermochemistry and more!

Want to know more about neutrons, protons and electrons? It may be time to revisit these and other chemistry subjects through interactive courses with an expert tutor!

Learn chemistry in London

Whether you want to improve your skills or prepare for your final exams in a small group, London is full of places where chemistry is in the spotlight. There are chemistry departments at all the major and very highly rated universities in London. The top ranked chemistry programs in London are the following:

  1. University College London
  2. Imperial College London
  3. King's College London
  4. Queen Mary, University of London
  5. Greenwich

With London Metropolitan and Kingston taking 6th and 7th place respectively, according to the Complete University Guide. Many universities offer grants, research, networking, lectures, and awards each year.

Different schools require rigorous training and total mastery of your chemistry courses before being accepted to their programs. It is generally essential to take some scientific preparatory classes, which allow for essential preparation for entrance exams to engineering schools or other programs. The advantage of a prep class is to give you all the tools you need to learn the necessary chemistry skills,  quickly and efficiently.

The same goes for preparation for final exams in upper school as well as homework support all year-round, as many university's offer acceptance to their programs based on marks achieved in maths and sciences in high school.

There are also other public or private schools that offer courses thanks to a solid teaching team: your chemistry teacher will usually be an associate, or a certified teacher. Most come from the Ministry of Education and have accreditation including more than a bachelor's degree in the sciences. Some private institutes also offer tutoring courses in chemistry.

There are also associations in London where the formula is simple: science or chemistry enthusiasts, or private teachers, who get together two to three times a week to discuss the sciences. These associations can also be a great resource for finding qualified chemistry tutors in the city.

For an intensive internship or revisions for exams such as the GCSE, A-Level and University, tutoring can help set you up for success.

London and Chemistry

Do you know the most famous mathematician of all time? Granted, there are several, between Marie Curie and her discovery of radium and polonium, Louis Pasteur who created the process of pasteurization, and John Dalton who identified and presented the atomic theory.... chemistry covers many different aspects!

Other big names in mathematics have influenced the discipline, many hail from the UK such as Dorothy Hodgkin, the only British woman to have ever won a Nobel Prize in science! She and her team worked on the important medicines of penicillin, vitamin B12 and insulin.

Moreover, we must remember how the sciences, and especially chemistry, is the fundamental study of everything that exists! Chemistry is the study of matter's composition, structure and properties, and matter is a part of absolutely everything that takes up space and has mass, including, a chair, a human being, the air, a tree... everything!

You can learn more about the amazingness of chemistry by visiting the Cracking Chemistry science show at the Science Museum London. They are celebrating the 150 year anniversary of the first periodic table, and putting on a wonderfully informative and explosive show for kids and adults alike.

Also, if you have a curious mind and want to learn more about chemistry, you can play the chemical elements game at the Faraday Museum at the Royal Institution. Situated in a grand building just off Piccadilly, it has been home to 14 Nobel prizewinners and housed the laboratories of some of the greatest scientists!

Hundreds of chemistry teachers in London

Chemistry teachers are not lacking in the city of London: between universities, private schools, business schools, associations or even science clubs, you will always find a teacher to help you study your periodic table or offer help with homework.

Moreover, in most universities or schools, students have access to hours of academic support to help them progress. Home tutoring can also be set up during the school year, or during the holidays (winter holidays, easter holidays). There are even summer vacation science camps, to enjoy at the same time as visiting tourist attractions, such as Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and the British Museum.

Taking an after school or weekend chemistry class can also be a smart solution: teachers are ready to teach you at any time of the week! Moreover, to improve your skills, they will tell you that there is nothing better than science worksheets and workbooks. Why not take your notebook under your arm, and go study on the terrace of a cafe or under a tree at Trafalgar or Berkeley Square?

Know also that each professor has their speciality or field of expertise: analytical, bimolecular, environmental, inorganic... But a chemistry tutor must also be able to adapt to all circumstances and the needs of each student!
